16 de febrero de 2017, 09:13Astana, Feb 16 (Prensa Latina) Representatives of Russia, Turkey, and Iran, along with heads of armed groups and officials of the Syrian government, are today seeking to reconcile a regime to control the cessation of hostilities and measures to punish offenders.
But some of Syria's rebels say they won't begin negotiating a political settlement with the government until measures are taken to bolster a flagging cease-fire and address urgent humanitarian concerns.

The arrival of a downgraded Turkish delegation with the rebels on the last day of the talks in the Kazakh capital also signaled that they were not serious about participating in the talks, Ja'afari said.

The U.N. envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, was meanwhile meeting with top Russian officials in Moscow in the run-up to the anticipated talks.

The discussions were to take place on February 15 and 16.
While Russia and Iran back the regime with military might, Turkey has supported rebels fighting to oust Assad.
Attendance at the Astana talks is more uncertain, though Syria's government is being represented by Jaafari who has already arrived in Kazakhstan.
Jordan said it would attend the Astana talks as an observer.
